Welcome Wykle,
I to like to have kids around too.  Mine wanted no part of the sawmill but there was a batch about 8 years ago that love it.  Those today disappear right after they get off of the school bus.  I don't know where they go but the mailboxes still get mashed so I guess they are out there somewhere.

Well I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one with the mashed mailbox syndrome. Hasn't happend where I live now but at the last house I had to replace a couple. Then it dawned on me how to fix that problem once and for all.

I made one out of steel pipe it wasn't pretty but I never had another problem with it. Oh and the kicker of this story is one morning the mrs found a broken end of a baseball bat. The paint had a smudge in it but that was it.

I would have loved to see the look on the kids face when his plan of destruction backfired in his face. :D

One day I'll have to ride by there and take a picture of it.

Welcome Wykle, I personally don't know nuthin bout birthing babies or magneto's, but  I'm guessing there are a few here who probably do know something bout magnets or magnetos.  I just know that the Forum as a whole and collectively seem to have a lot of combined knowledge and everyone gets along and learns bunches. So jump in, have fun, participate, and learn with the rest of us.

How far south in West Virginia? I lived and worked in West Virginia for a few years,  Richwood, W. VA. Have some great memories from there.

Chet, The Farmall Cub uses IHC's own C60 engine.  Comparable tractors like the Allis Chalmers G and the Massey Harris Pony use the N62 Continental.
